There's always one idiot at every club in fairness.

Galbally just happens to have more than one.

County Board do not have a sponsor for the Club Championship yet because Donnelly Bros pulled out after what happened with Mc Aleer and Rushe! FACT! That's why the draw hasn't been made yet!

That would make sense - cheers!

Any idea of when Club Championship is meant to be drawn? Was my understanding this was supposed to be done weeks ago and hasn't been for whatever reason?

The Moy has a bit going for it.

The fact there is four ways to get out of it, being one.

An honourable mention for Crumlin actually on this - pretty much houses the ones booted out of Belfast. Terrible place altogether and a bit of a war zone when it kicks off.

Used to work on the same floor as the NI Road Service at a time, believe me, nothing will ever get done going on that particular office. To say it was lax, would be an understatement.

Great result for Carrickmore today. Hopefully it kick starts the season for them. Any reports on it?
Clonoe have had a poor start to the season but anyone who was there yesterday will agree it was one of the best Carmen performances in years. Spearheaded by who else other than Conor gormley. Showing no sign of slowing up just yet.. hope this kickstarts the season with another massive game v Killyclogher next week

Was up at the game yesterday. The fact that Gormley is still driving Carrickmore on beggars belief. I think it shows just ho poor Carrickmore are. He was done 7 years ago never mind now. Clonoe always struggle this time of year. Wouldnt be panicking yet.

Joe McMahon been togged out for Omagh past two games and he's not set foot on a pitch since last year.

Moy ship another tanking this evening in Garvaghey losing to Trillick 2-14 to 0-09. Another excellent result for the Tatts bearing Derrytresk by 3 points.

 In Garvaghey?

According to Tyrone  GAA website anyway. Assuming Moy gave up home advantage to move it to Friday night and didn't have floodlights or offered Garvaghey to encourage Trillick to accept move.

Fair chance their pitch wasn't playable. Never holds up well in constant rain.

Lettuce move on lads

On current form how would be your starting 15?
Is Hampsey back on the square now?
Has McNamee dropped down the pecking order?
Has McCarron regained some of his hair sorry I mean form?

Will we have another set of brothers in the team in the McGearys?
Will Richie Donnelly ever be fit for more than two games and show us all his true worth?
Who is our best MF now that we do have some options in that area?
Is Mattie better at CHB or CHF?

Will Tiernan be back for the summer?
Will we have a plan B this year or is that just for Croke Park stewards these days?
What happens if Lee gets injured? Has he passed out his older brother as first choice now? How good can he be?

Will McShane be our answer at FF or is he another Enda McGinley 3rd midfielder?
Will Mark Bradley no longer be our only player up in the FF line surrounded by 3 Monaghan defenders.

Is Frank Burns our new solid CHB to finally replace Seamus McCallan from 1996?

Does anyone know will Dan McNulty ever come back into the county setup
Will any of these questions be answered this summer?

Interesting reading through the U21 final match report which is 3 years ago in 3 weeks time.

I thought Mark Kavanagh certainly would have made it to the senior team from that season.

Dan McNulty would need to come back for Clonoe before he comes back to the County

Won't be this year from what I hear.

I have lived in and around Strabane, Portstewart, Lurgan and Dungannon in my time and work near Portadown at the minute.  Lurgan is not as bad as its made out to be, got more going for it than Dungannon and Portadown.  Strabane is not as bad either.  I take it posters here haven't been to places like Carrickmore, Newtonstewart, Castlederg, Middletown, Derrynoose, Limavady or Coalisland?

An utter shitehole. Full of travellers, 10p RA men and benefits cheats. No-one from Coalisland admits to being from it they all say Edendork.
Traffic in the town is a nightmare as Parking Attendants give it a wide berth due to ongoing intimidation.

To be fair they've done some job with the eye sole of the old barracks. Unrecognisable these days.

A couple of points.

Firstly, people seem to have pre-conceived ideas of towns and therefore consider them to be shitholes despite them not being from anywhere near them or spending any considerable amount of time in them.

Secondly, every large urban area will have its own shithole areas and itís own scumbags running about it. Name me a town that doesnít.

Thirdly, how do you even judge a town on being a shithole? Is it underinvestment? The number of working class estates? The colour of the kerbs? The amount of litter? The architecture? The traffic jams?

Lurgans name as usual has popped up yet Iíd question how many people have actually been there or spent any tangible amount of time there recently. Postcodes in Lurgan were actually named as some of the most desirable in the north when it comes to affordable (decent) housing, access to schools, transport, retail etc.

Larne is another one and I actually was in Larne for the first time ever a few months back, yes itís a dreary wee town but from what I saw itís no better or worse than most other towns. Even banbridge got a mention which to me was always a mainly middle class town!

Lurgan isn't a bad spot all in all, been out for a few pints in it in my time - can't say I'd rush back for another night out but as for the actual location etc, it's not bad at all. Decent enough selection of shops, Eamonnca1 words on it were quite true to be honest - Lurgan has a lot going for it, like most towns probably the bad news takes precedence over the good?

I hate driving over the train tracks in the town though....

I cant understand why they would release these fixture number of weeks ago, just to pull them now.
Thats the frustrating thing for the club players.

Honestly, as a club player I'm happy enough it's going to be pulled. I think 99% of players would be happy with the talk of one Saturday fixture.

And 99.9% would love all fixtures to be Saturday full stop.

It would be very hard to look past Larne.
Is Larne really that bad?  Just seems like an easy option in threads like this.  No worse than other provincial towns imo.  Was there relatively recently and didn't seemed to be that many vacant retails outlets etc.  What do people expect from a small town?

Yeah itís just the go to suggestion on a thread like this. There isnít much in it granted but you could say that about any number of places

Worked in Larne for about 5 years, the saying the best thing about Larne is the road out of it is probably about right, there is a scummy element to it, but the same could be said for anywhere, why hasnt Belfast been mentioned? Even parts of Belfast city centre are rotten, any area of the centre near social housing needs looked at. Been working in the centre now for about 3 years and by christ some people look like zombies!

As for Lisburn, yeah black hole, but as a place to live (I dont live there) it seems a nice place (bar the estates)

Funny was in Belfast last week - ended up parking in North Street, haven't been past Castlecourt that way since I was at Uni (used to actually work in Castle Street not even up to 4 years ago). I was taken aback, a real dive and genuinely looked like something you'd see off the wrong side street in Dublin....walking down it I was half thinking is this car going to be here by the time I get back.
